THE SAYINGS OF OUR ELDERS

  • If you damage the character of another, you damage your own.
  • No one tests the depth of a river with both feet.
  • A chattering bird builds no nest.
  • A single bracelet does not jingle.
  • A good deed is something one returns.
  • We will water the thorn for the sake of the rose.
  • If your mouth turns into a knife, it will cut off your lips.
  • A man who has bread to eat does not appreciate the severity of a famine.
  • A coward dies many times before his death while a brave dies but once.
  • When you change kings, you change customs.
